Paradigm Pensions launches provider ‘marketplace’ for IFAs

Paradigm Pensions founder Steve Bee has developed an online ‘marketplace’ which allows advisers to shop around providers’ savings and benefits products.

The marketplace, which is available through the Jargon Free Benefits compliance and flexible benefits system launched by Bee last year, gives providers a platform to showcase their products and services to IFAs free of charge.

Bee says the initiative has received the backing of 25 providers.

He says: “I set up Paradigm Pensions with the express intention of helping forward-thinking advisers gain greater access to the enormous opportunities in the employee benefits space.

“The launch of the marketplace will transform the workplace pensions and benefits market in the UK.”
